Netflix Now: Box of Chocolates Edition

0

Netflix Instant is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get. And this week, we have gotten quite a lot. I was going to use this time to mention that story going around this week about a woman quitting her job with Kanye music, or Kanye’s current beef with the paparazzi, but there’s too much on Netflix Instant this week to waste space: Forrest Gump, Grease, Ghostbusters, Twilight, Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, Evil Dead 2, The Italian Job*breathes in* Resident Evil, Road House, Ghoulies II, Pumkinhead, Room 237 Troll, and Troll 2.

That’s not even including the television shows. We’ve got brand new seasons of The Walking Dead, Parks and Recreation, How I Met Your Mother, and Louie. Then we have the final seasons of both The Office and 30 Rock. If none of those excellent films or television shows wet your whistle, there are plenty of trashy reality shows like Call of the Wildman (which actually isn’t that bad, but I’m dead inside from watching too much TV). 

Hit the jump for the giant ass list of Netflix Instant additions this week.
